Gallery: Day nine at the Australian Open as Rafael Nadal shows ominous form
Here is our pictorial from day nine at the 2019 Australian Open featuring Rafael Nadal, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Petra Kvitova and more.
Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas in action against Roberto Bautista Agut.
The Greek fairytale continues at Melbourne Park as Tsitsipas won in four sets.
And the Greek fans went wild, of course.
Unseeded Danielle Collins certainly didn’t shy away from the occasion…
Petra Kvitova ended the Ashleigh Barty party on Rod Laver Arena.
Although emotions understandably got the best of her in her post-match interview as she reflected on her personal journey.
Rafael Nadal couldn’t wait to get onto court to face Frances Tiafoe.
And it didn’t take him long to get into his groove.
Or indeed reach that familiar ‘I just did brilliant tennis’ interview mode.
But spare a thought for Frances Tiafoe, who endured the toughest of beatings in his biggest match to date.
